Polyisoprene Latex Market Trends
Growing Demand from Medical Sector: Polyisoprene latex is used to manufacture medical/surgical gloves, catheters, and medical balloons, as concerns toward patient safety increases across medical centres, nursing homes, and hospitals, who are preferring polychloroprene and polyisoprene as an alternative material to natural rubber to ensure patient safety from pathogens.
Moreover, polyisoprene latex material has an added advantage of comfort and protection when compared to natural rubber gloves. Synthetic rubber gloves are picking up pace in the healthcare sector, and are expected to significantly contribute to the expansion of the global polyisoprene latex market size over the coming years.
Rising Awareness toward Usage of Contraceptives: Increasing awareness toward contraceptive usage in order to prevent unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases is expected to drive the global polyisoprene latex market, owing to its use in the manufacturing of condoms.
Along with sex education and prevention against STDs, increasing urbanization coupled with marketing & promotional stints have made the usage of protection a globally acceptable practice.
Moreover, experiments and innovation with condom designs are also propelling factors for market growth. Growth in the demand from the wearable contraceptive industry is expected to be a major contributing factor toward the growing demand for polyisoprene latex. Condoms are one of the major applications of polyisoprene latex. Increasing demand for condoms is pushing the demand for safe and effective materials such as polyisoprene latex and SBR. Condom manufacturers are using combinations of various materials to manufacture quality condoms to differentiate themselves in this competitive environment.
Automation & Technology to Affect Polyisoprene Latex Market Growth: Automation and technology is growing at a higher rate with each passing day. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is expected to replace multiple manufacturing jobs. Automation is expected to be a major part of the manufacturing industry in the coming years. Subsequently, the demand for PPE, such as surgical and industrial gloves, is expected to be limited to only specific operations. Automation in end-use industries is expected to reduce human labor and considerably increase efficiency as well as accuracy, although it could have an impact on employment and the use of PPE, which, in turn, is expected to hamper the growth of the global polyisoprene latex market.
